A giant horse shoe cable and moss stitch snood.
“The must have accessory of the season has to be the ‘snood’, part scarf, part hood. Worked as a simple rectangle ‘Cove’ is later seamed to form a tube. This design works equally well pulled over the shouders for those chilly days, guess that makes it part shrug too!”
